Re: Throwback Thursday Questions

  • 1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life?
    10 years ago I was 14 and about to go into high school. I just started wearing makeup and I was obsessed with competitive gymnastics and cheerleading.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?
    Probably barbie! That's all I remember playing with and polly pockets and my little pony.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes?
    My parents have a ton of disney VHS tapes. I actually think I have some cassettes stored away somewhere in my room at home. I think it's like an old brittney spears cassette lol.

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show.
    I miss all old school Nickelodeon and Disney. I used to be obsessed with Rugrats lol.

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore?
    Sprite Remix!!

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think?
    I think so. I've seen my boss wearing them but those may be the originals.

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus?
    Yep! I learned many things on the school bus. Probably the most weird thing was any sort of sexual term that I have never encountered from the old school puberty book mom gave us when we were in middle school that told women to use sponges as pads! GROSS!

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!!
    I haven't done many but here is one my mom posted of me a few weeks ago:

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years?
    Definitely the 90s. I was born in 1989. I loved the 90s and I miss many things from those years. I loved how simple things were sometimes.

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it?
    I told H the other day I wanted to go to the roller rink on our next date night!

    1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life? I was a junior in high school. I think 10 years ago today I was less than a week removed from the ACT (after, I think?) and getting ready for junior prom at the end of the month.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid? Can I count the computer? I started reprogramming games as a kid back before things were locked down more tightly. My uncle called it cheating when I had infinite lives and ammo.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes? Yes! My brother and I used to record ourselves playing the piano with a really crappy mike and tape player. I still have the cassette tapes. I also still have a few audiobooks on cassette from when the library was selling them.

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show. Okay, many way toss-up: Bill Nye the Science Guy, Magic School Bus, Garfield and Friends, and Digimon. I own all razzing I will get for those choices.

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore? Technically it's still around, but they really screwed up Cinnamon Toast Crunch and I want the original back.

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think? I don't know if they're in style or not, but they're really freaking comfortable. Besides, if you don't tuck your shirt in (e.g., wear long shirts), who can tell you're wearing mom jeans?

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus? I did ride the bus, but I don't think it was particularly ... educational.

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!! Nope, no TBT posts.

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years? 90s. And I don't especially miss them.

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it? Yes, I did go to school night at the roller rink!! A lot! Our roller rink is still open and does decent business - well, the one I went to, anyway. My family moved when I was 10 and I came back to my hometown for college (don't get excited, we moved all of 75 miles). I haven't found a roller rink up here, but I haven't looked, either.
  • 1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life? Um, I was 23 so what was I doing? OMG I was such a party girl, crazy ass parties at my parent's house that year. I was going back to college for my degree (well I started the summer of 2003). I was dating my now-ex, I think he was looking at law schools or something at the time. I was a manager in a hair salon for the first half of the year, then I quit that salon to work at another salon to make more $$.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid? Some of my favorites were Mouse Trap, Fischer Price Garage (idk why), and this apple toy that had a bell in it. My mom still has that saved.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes? I do, but I'll probably throw them out when we spring clean

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show. Hmmm, I didn't have TV until I was 10 so I didn't have a lot of childhood shows. I watched Mr. Roger's when I was at my grandparent's house.

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore? Nothing that I can think of. The new Fischer-Price people annoy the shit out of me. OH what happened to weeble-wobbles??????

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think? No, and I hate them.

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus? I rode the bus until 5th grade. I learned to wear my hair in a ponytail because one time a kid threw a lollipop and it landed in my hair. I was SO pissed.

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!! Nope.

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years? I'm an 80's kids. I don't miss the 80's. I do miss the 90's, best music of our generation.

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it? The closest roller rink was near a Navy Submarine base so we would go as kids and see the cadets (I think) in those white outfits skating, we thought it was hilarious.

  • 1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life? I was 15. Kicking butt in high school, really into writing and somewhat into theater, and mooning over boys.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid? I love my Barbies and my American Girl dolls. They went on adventures. But once my family got a computer, I abandoned those and typed out dozens of stories, some of which I'm sure were absolutely ridiculous.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes? I have a million VHS tapes at my dad's house of all my favorite movies from childhood. I should go through them! The only cassette tape I still have is a recording my parents made of them reading all of our favorite bedtime stories, so when we were staying away from home we would still have them and our books. :)

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show. Oh wow, that's a really hard one. Probably gotta be Wishbone.

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore? Hm. I miss Fruit Stripes gum like crazy! I still see it in Cracker Barrel sometimes, but never anywhere else, and there isn't a CB near me.

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think? I have no opinion on this.

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus? My mom had to drive me in elementary school (private school, no bus), so I started riding in middle school. I owe my entire four-letter word vocabulary to riding the bus!

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!! I don't do them, and I haven't been tagged yet. I think my mom may have one picture of me as a little kid, but it wasn't for TBT.

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years? 90's. I miss them very much, being a 90's kid was the bomb!

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it? I don't remember this ever, but I do miss Book-It! I was always destined to be a book nerd and incredibly bad at anything requiring coordination, lol.

    1.  Ten years ago what were you doing in life?
    Just started working at the company I'm still at.  Was single, hated the idea of dating, just wanted to bypass the dating stuff and meet someone worthwhile.  Had a very tight-knit group of friends that I hung out with every weekend, drinking mostly.  lol.

    I liked Barbie or dolls/stuffed animals in general (cabbage patch kids)

    God I hope not, but at least my fat/flat ass could rock them if need be.
    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus?

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!!

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years?
    80's was my prime growing up.  I miss them dearly...except my ugly middle school years.

    YES!  One time we were there and Michael Jackson's Thriller video had just been released and they let us sit on the rink and watch the video on a huge screen.  I thought it was so cool that we were sitting on the rink floor.

    1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life? I was 17 and I was looking at colleges.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid? Besides EVERYTHING? Probably LEGOs.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes? Nope. It helps that I've been moving around so much that I don't have much childhood stuff though. I do still have a bunch of oldish game consoles (GBA and N64).

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show. Old school Looney Toons, baby.

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore? I miss the old-school Polly Pockets and My Little Pony toys. I also miss LEGO before they got super branded. These days, there's not much that's not Star Wars/Harry Potter/LOTR or that doesn't have mostly specialized pieces. I miss getting a set and having it be mostly regular bricks.

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think? Hells no. What a terrible style of jeans.

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus? I did, off and on. I didn't ride it to school in 4th and 5th grade because my dad dropped my brother and me off, but when my brother started high school, I started taking it in the mornings again. When I hit high school, I almost entirely stopped taking the bus. My brother drove me my freshman year, my friend's brother drove both of us in my sophomore year, and starting second semester junior year, I had a parking permit.

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!! I don't usually, but I'll post a pic here anyway.

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years? I feel like I grew up in the mid/late-90s and very early 00s. Everything since 2003/4 has felt like I'm done growing up. I have a terrible memory, though, so there's lots of early 90s stuff I should remember, but don't.

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it? I've only EVER been roller skating at a rink once in my life. It was at summer camp when I was 15 or 16. I hated it.

    Thank you! I was such a proper little girly girl until I was about 7 years old. Then I chopped off my hair, decided orange was my favorite color, and refused to wear dresses or skirts. It was the best. Maybe I'll do that again ...

    1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life? I was 14 so I was in my freshman year of high school. I was probably super excited to be leaving junior high and moving to the high school the next year. I made it to state for National History Day and lettered in academics.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid? I didn't really have a favorite toy. I really loved reading so I had a lot of favorite books.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes? Nope.

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show. I loved Lizzie McGuire

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore? It makes me sad that most Dairy Queens (where I am at least) don't do the vanilla and chocolate swirl anymore. That was my favorite as a kid!

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think? I'm not really up on what's in style so I wouldn't know.

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus? No. I walked to school or my parents drove me. I waivered into my school so the bus wasn't an option. On the way back from a track meet our bus hit a deer. That was quite the experience.

    1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life?
    I was in my junior year of high school (I think?). I was spending EVERY afternoon at the barn with my best friends; cleaning stalls, filling water buckets, and riding. Those was great days :-)

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?
    I had a water baby I named "Katherine" which I thought was the most beautiful name imaginable. I was also OBSESSED with the Littlest Pet Shop toys.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes?
    I'm sure my mom has some in the attic.

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show.
    Too many to pick from! I loved Doug, Rugrats, Hey Dude. and Arthur.

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore?
    Are Flintstones Push-Up Pops still a thing? If not, bring those back please.

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it?
    I was never into roller skating, but in high school it was very cool to go ice skating on Friday night. I remember being in 10th grade and wearing a t-shirt with Tinkerbell on it I had ordered from a magazine (I was COOL though, I swear!), bell bottoms, and my MOM's black leather jacket, plus lots of eyeliner, and thinking I looked so damn good.

    1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life?
    I was still adjusting to the idea that I was going to become a mom that November. I was working full time at a New Home Community and was with my then BF who later became my H and eventually XH.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?
    I don't know that I had a favorite honestly. I can't remember favoring any one toy over another. I'm lame like that. I will say I do have fond memories of Lite Brite. 

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes?
    Yes, VHS tapes with no player. I don't think I have any cassettes lying around.

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show.
    Muppet Babies for SURE! And Doug. 

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore?
    Surge. It was pretty awesome, and one of the first fads I remember getting into. I loved Surge. 

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think?
    I think the high waisted jeans are coming back, but they won't be around for long. They're still hideous. 

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus?
    Not really. I only really rode the bus in Middle School and I didn't learn much of anything. I mostly slept. 

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!!
    I have been tagged in photos (not too embarrassing) and I do post a photo every now and then, but I'm not a religious TBTer.

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years?
    Mostly 90s. They were probably my most formative kid years. I do miss them sometimes.

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it?
    Pshh yeah! I always went to spirit night at the roller rink. They still go here at the girls' school.

    1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life? I was 16 and a junior in high school. I was in marching band, concert band, still dating my hs boyfriend of a year and a half although I was about to break up with him after the realization that he was going nowhere in life. Hmmm, what else...probably taking the SAT for the first and only time.
    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid? I don't remember. We used to have a lot of fun with our Slip n' Slide. Oh, and Polly Pockets and those flying fairy things that I don't remember the name of.
    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes? FI does. My parents basically own every single Disney movie ever on VHS.
     
    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show. Pete and Pete. Are you Afraid of the Dark? Wishbone. So many others.
    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore? Someone mentioned Cinnamon Toast Crunch was ruined? That was probably my favorite cereal.
     
    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think? I think so...or at least high-waisted 90s jeans are coming back. I think they are butt ugly and unflattering and I hate them.
     
    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus? Yes. Probably every single 4 letter word I know today.
    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!! I don't but my mom does. Here's a TBT picture she posted of me picking strawberries in Germany.image
     
    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years? The 90s was my childhood. But I think I did my real growing up...like this is adult life growing up in the 2000s. So much about who I am is from how I developed as an adult in my early and mid 20s.
    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it? We went every single week. I loved roller rink nights!!!



  • 1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life?
    Being 12 years old, ha.  I guess I was in middle school, so I was doing that and having crazy weird times with my awesome childhood friends

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?
    My sister and I adored Legos.  We used to make bug traps out of them (ew, that's really gross).  We also used to enjoy chopping off Barbie's hair and burying them in the ground. 

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes?
    No VHS, but I have some cassette tapes. 

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show.
    Are You Afraid of the Dark was the best

    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore?
    Hm.. I guess Lunchables are still around, but I haven't had one in at least 10 years, and I always thought the little pizzas were delicious.

    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think?
    Yeah, probably.  But in that silly ironic way that a lot of things are "cool" these days.

    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus?
    I did when I was in K and 1st grade, but then we moved and I didn't.  Once, I missed my stop and had to have the driver drop me off after everyone else got off the bus.  That was a learning experience for a five-year-old.

    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!!
    Nope.  I don't really do anything on Facebook.

    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years?
    90s, for sure.  And I guess a little of the 00's (yeah, I'm young).  I don't really miss them, but they had a special sort of charm, I guess.

    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it?
    This was not a thing where/when I grew up.

    1. 10 years ago what were you doing in life?
    I was in my freshman year of college, getting over my first heartbreak (HA you think that one was bad, just wait!) hanging out with an ill-advised fuckbuddy, and generally making bad decisions. It was SO much fun though.

    2. What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?
    Barbies for days.

    3. Do you still own any VHS tapes or cassette tapes?
    I do have a few, actually. I have nothing to play them on, but I have them still.

    4. Name your favorite past childhood TV Show.
    Full House - I wanted to be D.J. Tanner. We looked like twins when we were younger......not so much anymore.
     
    5. What do you wish was around today (like a food brand or toy brand) that isn't anymore?
    Dunkaroos. RIP never forget.
     
    6. Are mom jeans coming back in style? What do you think?
    Have mom jeans ever actually BEEN in style?
     

     
    7. Did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned on the school bus?
    My sister and I lived in a different town than we went to school (mom worked for a better school system), so we rode in with her and then took the METCO bus from there. METCO was the program that bussed minority kids in from inner city Boston to go to a nicer school, and they were mostly African American students. My sister and I were automatically cool for being associated with them and being the only whitey-white kids on the bus.

     
     
    8. Do you do TBT posts on facebook or have you been tagged in an embarrassing one yet? Let's see it!!
    I don't usually do them, I can't think if I've been tagged in one.

     
     
    9. What would you consider your growing up years? 70s, 80s, 90s? Do you miss those years?
    90's kids for sure. I had a GREAT childhood but I don't really miss it - the 90s were wonderfully tacky and best left behind.
     
    10. Remember school night at the roller rink? Did you go lol? I'm sorry I used to love roller skating! What happened to it?
    There is a roller skating rink down the street from where I  live (in my hometown, so it's the one I went to as a kid) that is still VERY active. I know someone who had her 40th birthday there and it was 80's themed, and they serve alcohol. I would so do that.

    @csousa1 First of all, I always wanted to be Stephanie Tanner from Full House ... even though I was actually Michelle's age. It just never occurred to me because I was always watching reruns.

    Second of all ... what school did you go to? I went to CCHS, so I'm familiar with METCO.

    I'm also closest in age to Michelle in real life, between her and Stephanie. But I looked a lot like DJ and she was my favorite.

    I went to school in Weston! We played you guys in sports, if I'm thinking of the right CCHS.
